Quizzical Pursuit
—The Architecture Puzzler

Created by Dave Guadagni

Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
Architecture Puzzler #102


Acrylics and polyurethanes are two main types of sealant. Which is generally cheaper and can be painted sooner? Typically, a knowledgeable specifier would use the polyurethane on the exterior and the acrylic for the interior. Why?


Acrylics are usually about half the cost of polyurethanes and can be painted within hours. Acrylics do not tolerate as much movement as polyurethanes and so are used for interiors.


Okay, got it? Now try this week's Puzzler:
